As you already know, two thirds of the Israeli public would like to see an end of the Occupation in the West Bank as well and establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel. Public demonstrations are not always influential towards having a leadership change its direction - Likud especially. I understand the Labour members of the coalition have complained to DM Ehud Barak that perhaps within a few weeks without significant demonstration by Netanyahu of engaging in either accepting the U.S. request or stopping construction in Jerusalem, then they'd have to pull out of coalition. This would be unfortunate once again, but two thirds of the Israeli public is realistic about the facts on the ground. PS. At yesterday's Israel's 62 Independence Day celebrations there was a record numbers turnout....and wonderful to see friends and acquaintances. ....no politics though.
